Dear What Is Giving Head,

 

"Giving head" generally refers to stimulating a penis with one's mouth. For more information on the subject you may want to read TeenHealthFX's responses to Clueless on Oral Sex, Boyfriend Asked For Oral Sex and My Girlfriend Gets Sick Giving Me Oral Sex.

 

TeenHealthFX feels strongly that you only engage in sexual acts that you feel comfortable with. Any form of intimacy should be mutually enjoyable for both partners and good communication between both partners is essential. Never let anyone pressure you into anything that you are not comfortable with.

 

When performing any type of sexual activity, you should practice safer sex, even with oral sex. You can use condoms on males with oral sex as well as sexual intercourse. For females, you can use dental dams or a condom cut along the seam to cover the vaginal area during oral sex. This can help to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

 

When you decide to become sexually active, both you and your partner should be seen at a teen health center or local Planned Parenthood. In Northern New Jersey you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973.971.6475. They can check you both out medically, go over birth control methods and options with you and discuss any questions you may have.
